Sorry if this was asked before, but searching didn’t yield anything meaningful: When some of my tests fail and I try to detect that using Gradle (e.g.
./gradlew allTests
or
./gradlew check
), this doesn’t work when I’ve already run the tests before. What happens is that the first time I run
gradlew
it indeed fails because of the failing tests, but then if I run it a second time it doesn’t run the tests again as the tasks are already “up-to-date” – but it also doesn’t fail (as if the tasks being up-to-date is a good enough reason to pass, even though the tasks’ up-to-date state is that they’re failing). Is there some way to tell Gradle to fail when the “up-to-date” tasks it doesn’t want to run again failed the last time? Clarification: I’m not asking how to make Gradle rerun the tests – if nothing’s changed since the last run then I’m happy with Gradle considering everything up-to-date and not wasting time re-executing tasks. I just want it to fail (= return with a non-zero exit code) in that state, like it did upon the first run of the failing tests, and not “pretend” that everything’s OK.

I don’t think the behaviour you’re describing should be the default. If a test task fails it’s not supposed to be cached. Have you customised the test task at all, e.g. by settings something like
ignoreFailure = true
?

If he would have set that, then it would also have failed the first time. But what Sam said. If a task failed last time you executed it and you run the task again, it will run again. I'm not even aware of any setting to change this. Can you please provide an MCVE that demonstrates this behavior?

Thanks, @Sam and @Vampire. I have not done any customisation. I’ve just reproduced the behaviour with a totally fresh project (on Kotlin 1.7.10, with Gradle 7.4.2, using IntelliJ’s wizard to create a multi-platform library with the default configuration taken as is). I’ve got a single test that calls
fail
, and that’s it. Running
./gradlew check
fails because of the failing test, but rerunning it exits with no error.

Again, can you provide that MCVE?

That's not an MCVE, it is far from being *C*omplete. Either build a ZIP with your project that you attach here if possible or through some service like swisstransfer.ch, or push it to a new GitHub project.

Thanks, @Vampire. Please take a look here: https://github.com/tomyuval/gradle-not-re-running-failed-tests.

I've had a look. If there is a problem, you probably have to bring this up with JetBrains and their Kotlin plugin. But actually, it works fine here. I run
check
three times and every time the tests were executed.
Maybe the up-to-date data is corrupted somehow, I see this happening from time to time. Try deleting all folders in
<GRADLE_USER_HOME>
and the
.gradle
in your project and test again.

Thanks, @Vampire. I tried cloning the repository into another directory (which is akin to deleting
.gradle
, as it is Git-ignored) and the same problem repeated. Deleting
<GRADLE_USER_HOME>
might help, but I’m not sure what that is – do you mean
~/.gradle
?

Vampire

08/23/2022, 12:05 PM
That is the default Gradle user home, yes

I deleted that too – didn’t help!

Well, I cannot say more than that it works like expected here.

Thanks for trying, @Vampire! I guess there’s some other difference in system/configuration – but I’ve got no idea what that might be.
If there is a problem, you probably have to bring this up with JetBrains and their Kotlin plugin.
Would love to do that! Anyone from JetBrains and their Kotlin plugin around here?

Maybe. Otherwise youtrack.jetbrains.com

Tom Yuval

08/23/2022, 1:43 PM
Yeah, will open an issue there (I’m a bit reluctant to do that when my reproduction instructions don’t work on others’ machines, but I may have no other choice, and maybe someone there will know what other parts of the system I should look at).
Hey @Vampire, sorry to bother you again with this, but a quick question: when you tried it and got it to fail twice, was the failure actually due to the failed tests? Asking because I’ve asked a couple of colleagues to try on their machines and at first they said it failed twice, but then we noticed the failure was due to other problems (missing Java/JDK or unsupported platform), but once they solved those problems and got it to actually fail because of the tests it didn’t fail anymore on subsequent runs.
v

Vampire

08/26/2022, 3:33 PM
Pretty sure. It was the "Supposed to fail" assertion.
Hm, strange. Actually now when I try it, I see the behavior you describe. 😕
t

Tom Yuval

08/26/2022, 3:55 PM
Nice! 😉 So I’ll file an issue 👍 But where should I file an issue? Is it a Kotlin thing, not a Gradle thing?
v

Vampire

08/26/2022, 3:55 PM
No, idea what changed though. But then we are back now at the place where I blame the plugin's configuration of the tasks. The individual test tasks are up-to-date as no inputs or outputs changed and the aggregating
allTests
task is rerun as it failed last time, but now does not fail as it obviously only fails if the individual test tasks had failures.
It is a thing of how the Kotlin plugin configures Gradle most probably. Gradle behaves exactly like expected, rerunning the task that failed in the previous run which now runs successful.

Tom Yuval

08/26/2022, 4:01 PM
OK, thanks! 👍

Vampire

08/26/2022, 4:03 PM
Argh, I tested from within IntelliJ. I thought it only makes task always rerun when using "Run test", but not when running an arbitrary Gradle task. But it seems even when running an arbitrary Gradle task IntelliJ injects the init script that makes tests always rerun and thus hide your issue. So it is important to not run it from inside IntelliJ to reproduce.

I just opened https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/KT-53738. I see there’s also https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/KT-32150 (over three years old!) which might be the same issue.
